  • “When I had our culture locked and loaded, the team met with the candidate first. If they liked that candidate, then I would interview them almost as a formality. I always hired them. I wanted to make sure that I was in a relationship with them, and that they understood our mission and values. But ultimately, the team did the hiring and said, I want this person on our team. That made them immediately invested in their success.”
